By Barbra B_1

I am a current client of this provider

They are friendly and have almost become family now. They are very thorough.

Provider Response

Dear Barbra, Family is how we would describe you and your aunt. Our caregivers love her and care for her deeply.

I think it went well, he was self-sufficient and just needed someone in the house when needed. I developed a good working relationship with Gurash and I think that dealing with him was a positive experience. The personnel that are sent out are a little too inexperienced, and the age range is really too young.

Provider Response

Thanks Susan! It was wonderful how you and Jacque always gave us great feedback so that we could serve your father well till the end. We will always remember his charm.

I like the majority of the aides, but some are not as active to make sure he gets out of the wheelchair, and doing activities. They could encourage the patient to be more active. I like the open communication, when I have a request they respond quickly.

Provider Response

Dear Monika, It's wonderful to take care of your father because he is so responsive. He tells us exactly what he needs, and is very open about sharing feedback about our caregivers. He makes everyone's life a lot easier, and caring for him becomes all that more gratifying. Take care! Gulraj

The caregiver keeps her active and provide the care she needs. The care that they have provided for my mom has been great.

Provider Response

Eric, we're glad to be there. We're so happy that our caregiver and your mother are so compatible. They're two peas in a pod and we're so happy that they have each other.

If you are looking for a company to help take care of your loved ones, please speak with Gulraj at the Right at Home, San Mateo office directly. You will instantly feel at ease. Before I found Right at Home, I had hired, then fired three other well known organizations to take care of my father. Their staff was lazy, sleeping on the job and could care less about my dad. I was so relieved to find Gulraj at Right at Home, San Mateo. When we first spoke Gulraj was interested in my dad, his history, passions and needs. Everything I mentioned, including that my dad was a photographer, was written down and shared with the care team. They would all engage my dad, make him laugh and make sure he was comfortable. The staff were incredibly supportive, helpful, concerned and compassionate with my dad. I never had to worry if staff was late, sick, lazy or sleeping. Gulraj kept a good eye on everything and has been the most caring owner of a senior care company I have ever found. He answers his phone, supports everyone and helped through some difficult situations. Gulraj and his team are their for their patients and it shows. My dad has now passed away, but Gulraj and his staff were there to the end and I couldn't have coped without their compassion and fantastic support. Thank you all.

Provider Response

Thank you so much! Caring for your father and walking this journey with you for the last few months was an honor. Your father was a resilient and kind man, who lived an incredible life. His photography shots all around the room, and his corresponding stories around those pictures, brought his spirit and our caregivers' spirits to life!

Right at Home has treated him with respect and patience. They have an attention to detail and make sure he doesn't fall down or eat food that is too unhealthy. I like the quality of customer service from Right at Home.

Provider Response

Betsy, thank you for the honor that you give our caregivers. It really shows your culture and values in the way you reciprocate to them, and we are grateful to you personally.

By Dorothy D_7

I am a past client of this provider

At the time, I really needed the services. My caregiver did some things for me that I wasn't able to do myself. The agency did exactly what they said they would for my care.

Provider Response

Thank for the kinds words, Dorothy. We hope you're getting a lot of time for reading, crochet, and watching sports!

I only had her two months and I have them twice a week and on those days I really enjoy her, I think she is a good friend. I have been very happy with this agency. I like the one that I have very much.

Provider Response

Rita, you are such a friendly person that our caregiver enjoyed your company just as much as you enjoyed hers. Wish you all the best!

It provides a lonely person with much needed company. The client gets along with the people they send.

The caregiver is very helpful and great but the agency has to invest a little more training in dementia. With the current caregiver I can't leave - I have to make sure everything is okay. It's only average because we like the person they've placed with us, but they don't have the training that was promised.

Provider Response

Thank you for the feedback and we do realize that we had needed to fine-tune this caregiver's training. We are happy that we were able to adjust the situation (again with your feedback) so that things worked out for you and your family. It's always a partnership in finding the right match and I'm glad that we worked together.

They've made my life easier because I couldn't move around. They were necessary for me to get anything done. I would tell a friend that the staff was eager to please.

Provider Response

Alice, I remember you saying that you "had never met a stranger". You really kept your word. All the caregivers became fans of your friendly nature!

We used Right at home for the end of my Father's life care. Right at Home has a majority of excellent care givers. One was not and we asked that they not come again. We needed medication administration and Right at Home was unable to administer for us. The caregivers arrived on time and would usually jump if asked to do something. If one does not need medication administration, I recommend them . Thank you for your assistance in the care of my father at the end of his life.

Provider Response

Thank you for understanding our limitations, as home-care agencies (including Right at Home) are not allowed to dispense medication by law. We were honoured to take care of your father and make him comfortable in the last stages of his life. We wish we had more time with him. He went too soon. He was a gentle man that was very kind to the caregivers.

By Bette R

She was driven around, and they took her out to walk around the neighborhood and other exercises. They were very attentive when I called them, and they helped with our needs.

Provider Response

It was a pleasure serving you Bette. Both our caregivers were quite fond of you, and we look forward to your next visit to the Bay Area. Take care!

After the first phone call I knew I picked the right company! Dan gave me first class attention. All my worries were set aside about "Who's going to help me care for my Dad". The employees are very caregiving and treat you as part of family. Couldn't do this without.

We're using Right at Home for my mother. They help with grocery shopping, light housekeeping, just generally watching her, making meals, and taking her to doctors' appointments. The aides are very good and very caring. Our communication with the agency is good. We text, exchange emails, and make phone calls. They're all very accessible in that sense. I'm thankful for their service.

It's a 100% improvement. The caregivers are very accommodating because my loved one is difficult sometimes. They want to please me. I speak directly with the owner and they try to accommodate any wishes I have for my loved one. It's an ordeal for me as his wife.

She feels safe with the caregivers. She's comfortable, so that makes us comfortable. The company is good, but like any employee, people get sick. They could have more communication and more reliability with no-shows.

I didn't really know what my dad needed, and I think the first caregivers couldn't keep up with him. Shauna gave me the feeling that she's seen this situation.

My mother-in-law had surgery in January and again in February. R A H came once a week to assist her with breakfast/lunch as well as bathing/dressing as needed. I am the main caregiver and R A H came in to allow me time off. The people who came in were kind and concerned. They sat with, conversed with, and attended to all needs. I was appreciative of their professionalism and support. R A H also communicated with me to follow up on performance of employees as well as progress of my mother-in-law. I would highly recommend R A H should you need assistance and support.

It makes it easier for us as his powers of attorney. Between the two of us and the care giving, it has helped amazingly well over the years. I would like to see him go out for more walks. The caregivers could speak better English. Sometimes the caregivers just sit and watch TV with him and they turn on a Mexican channel.

I have a good caregiver, but they drive me crazy because they talk too much. The caregivers need more training. They need to stay with me. I would like to see them give the caregivers more training. I had trouble with several caregivers. I need help with getting around. One caregiver left me for a minute. They should have been right there with me. They need some younger staff.

The caregiver spent most of their time on their cell phone or the TV. They need to have more qualified people and come up with a system so caregivers don't cancel at the last minute.

I am a current client of this provider

I think they're fine. They do things in the house for me. They're okay. There's one person that they sent out that I didn't care for, so I told them to not bring her back and they did that.

We've been a client of Right at Home for about 3 years now. Aside from an occasional hiccup when one of the Caregivers call in sick and don't show up on time, and occasionally RAH will send a Caregiver to fill in for the normal Caregiver who called in sick, that speaks very little English. This is a big problem when our love ones cannot communicate with their Caregiver. Otherwise, RAH has stepped up to the plate for us. So far we've been happy with the services the caregivers provide. Outside of minor issues, we would recommend Right at Home going forward.

Right At Home was invaluable in my dad's recovery from stroke and heart surgery. Shawna (owner) and Julia (patient coordinator) met with us when my dad was still at the skilled nursing facility. This made the transition from snf to home very smooth. There were two caregivers – Helen, then Marie. Both were very kind and very attentive. They really listened to our needs, kept up with his many medications, blood pressure checks, doctor’s appointments, heating up his food, and left us detailed notes every day. When he first arrived at the house, he was shuffling, struggled to climb stairs, had difficulty getting up off a chair, and tired easily. The PT would come to the house for an hour twice a week, but this wasn’t enough. He needed daily physical therapy to help improve his balance and regain muscle mass. They made sure of this. At the end of 2 months, he was walking uphill, can get up using just his leg muscles, and had no problems walking up and down the stairs. The improvement still impresses me. During the last 2 weeks, he felt so great; he had Marie take him to the grocery store. I think it gave him a sense of freedom again. I can’t thank them enough.

Shawna is extremely helpful and responsive. After speaking with her, she personally came to visit my father's home and to talk with my family. I needed someone to care for him right away and she was able to accommodate me with scheduled caregivers. The caregivers were bilingual and very good. With everything going on, this was one thing I did not have to think twice about. I'm lucky to have found Right At Home to serve my needs.

We hired Right at Home, and it has been good so far. The caregiver is very conscientious and very good to my mother-in-law. The agency itself is really good with matching the people we want. Very friendly and seemed to be on top of everything.

I am a past client of this provider

I am not happy with Right at Home. We used them for at least a month. They have this little sheet of paper with everything listed of what they do or don't do, and I reviewed it. I felt they had all the things that I needed, so I went with them. They told me that they would be back, but they never came back, so I never had a signed agreement with them. They sent a caregiver who was good, but there was no way that she could do a transfer. I felt that they lied because I filled out that I need transfers on their sheet.

Provider Response

We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with the transferring techniques of the caregiver we provided, we definitely try our best to make the right match. We hope that you have found the right caregiver.

My wife has Alzheimers but I have been able to keep her here in our home for the last several years. Thanks to Shanina and her wonderful staff at Right at Home.

I give them five stars!
